Ofsted safeguarding requirements

Schools and nurseries are overseen by Oftsed who require minimum standards of care. Oftsed make regular inspections on all aspects of the services provided to children. Within these inspections, the matter of child protection is considered.

Everyone who comes into contact with children has to be trained to Level 1 and within each setting, at least 2 people have to be trained to Level 2. These are the nominated child protection lead and deputy within each organisation.

In September, Oftsed will also be looking at aspects of e-Safety. The ChildProtectionCompany.com has recognised this and now also provides an online training course which covers the key elements of what you need to do to keep everyone safe when using modern technology.
